Two Jackson County Deputies Retired on Same Day after 25 Years of Service

Two Jackson County sheriff's deputies recently retired on the same day after 25 years of dedicated service to the community.

During a late-December ceremony, Jackson County Sheriff Nate Sickler presented Deputy Eric Johnson and Deputy Mike Hermant with a shadow box made by Records Manager Walt Haussner.

Deputies Johnson and Hermant also completed their final sign-off with Emergency Communications of Southern Oregon 9-1-1 Dispatch.

Both Johnson and Hermant started their careers with the Jackson County Sheriff's Office on May 7, 1998. Both went on to work in Corrections, Patrol and the SWAT Team.

Johnson worked for many years as the Bureau of Land Management deputy, patrolling deep in the Jackson County wilderness. Hermant was an Emergency Vehicle Operator Course instructor and he was most recently assigned as a Community Oriented Policing deputy.

Thank you to Deputies Eric Johnson and Mike Hermant for 25 years of service to the Jackson County community!
